    I want Rorschach please.
    You... you ARE kidding, right? I'm tired right now and can't decipher.

    I'll do the inevitable and say that there will be lots and lots of Batmen online/in tournaments. No explanation needed.

    I've always felt that NRS games tend to be stiff and slide-y. It's kind of hard to describe, and I see that hear. Not enough information to form many opinions yet.

    Then what's the point of him being a "gadget" character if he has the raw strength to brawl with anyone?

    Just stylistically it looks bad to me. But whatever, to each their own.
    'Cause he's the goddamn Batman that's why, his main combat trait is that he beats his opponents not only using his own physical/technical powers but through his mental analysis of his opponents powers and weaknesses, then using his knowledge of his opponents strengths and taking advantage of these opponents weaknesses to succeed.
    As for his costume design, too each his own I guess I think it looks pretty cool.

    I think a little bit of that is style, all the way back to MK1, they've looked just weird compared to other fighting games, and now its kind of what people expect from those guys :p

    Eeh, honeslty this isn't the place to look at the game competitively anyways. It'll be interesting as hell to watch TYM about it, see what the actual competitive MK players think.

    im interested.

    NRS did a great job with MK9 & im curious as to what they will improve upon with this game. If Injustice has a campaign similar to MK9, I'll rent it @ the very least.

    Batman is batman. He can do whatever the fuck he wants.
    If everyone else could move upwards socially, so can blacks. They are just dumb.
    "This comparison ignores the unique history of discrimination against Black people in America. Over the past four centuries, Black history has included nearly 250 years of slavery, 100 years of legalized discrimination, and only 50 years of anything else. Jews and Asians, on the other hand, are populations that immigrated to North America and included doctors, lawyers, professors, and entrepreneurs among their ranks. Moreover, European Jews are able to function as part of the White majority. To expect Blacks to show the same upward mobility as Jews and Asians is to deny the historical and social reality that Black people face."

    You guys really dont know how to read or do research. Ed Boon said this game is nothing like mk vs dc and I didnt see ANYTHING that said this game uses the MK9 engine. It doesnt even look like it uses the MK9 engine.

    #1 The game is in development, so things are subject to change.

    #2 Rocket Racoon knocks Hulk left and right in MVC. There's so much bad logic in the fighting game genre, it seems petty to point this out. Why are we even taking it there.

    It looks unrealistic for Batman, but I would be a hypocrite if I wasn't pissed at all of the other ridiculous stuff in fighting games.

    But dude, it's not like Batman occasionally does something crazy like travel through time and fight cavemen before becoming a witch hunter in the 16th century and then hanging out with Blackbeard on a pirate ship. That would be silly and completely out of character.

    What's funny is that that's not even some silly Silver Age plot, that's current Gritty Batman (yeah I know you already knew that. It's still hilarious)

    Looks awesome, but still a little stiff like MK9 is. The interactive environments thing... well... dunno how that will work. Hopefully nothing too dramatic. If anything I would guess that the knocking through walls would be handled like previous MK titles where it just changes the scenery.
    yes that has always been the mk curse , the 90z stiffness they never adapted out of, but you could say they stayed true to there franchise sticking to it and there fans..But are not most unreal engine games kinda stiff , gears , rainbow 6 yadda yadda yadda

    It is pretty vague from what was presented, but it looks good. I'm glad this will be separate from MK so there would be more freedom in the play style. I'm not really grasping what Boon was saying about an interactive environment, perhaps it was his way of describing multi-level stages? I'm hyped.

    ...or so DC thinks, and they're right. Gritty superheroes sell, and I've had enough of the cartoony fighting games. We have SF, Marvel, BB, KoF, GG, (insert anime inspired game here), Skullgirls... do we really need everything to look the same?
    I agree with the differentiating looks.

    MK characters move around like they shit their diapers though so I hope it looks like it moves better.

    My personal wishlist for this game:

    -Give each character different air normals and jumping arcs. MK9 did not have that, and as a result it made characters feel too much "samey" for my tastes.
    -No block button, as it eliminates crossup jumping attacks. It was only kept in MK9 because having it is a tradition in the MK series, but it's not needed here.
    -No run button. Glad it was removed in MK9. Just don't bring it back.
    -Remove the input bug and player 1 priority advantage.
    -No stupid gimmicky button minigames like in MKvs DC.

    I don't mind bringing some mechanics back from MK9 as long as NRS learns from the shitty mistakes they made - specially the way blockstun works and the stupid input leniency MK9 had going on. Also breakers.

    I like how yet another completely unrelated thread about a new fighting game became another "Fuck Capcom" thread. The butthurt is off the charts. STOP BUYING Capcom games, some people here sound like a bitter ex a bf/gf who never got over the break-up. GET OVER IT

    On another note: I heard great things about MK9, so I shall give this a chance. If nothing else, this should be balanced and fun.

    If i'm not mistake Mark said he was done with Joker after Arkham City. As a matter of fact I played the DLC for that game Harley's Revenge and the Joker doesn't speak except for a recycled clip. Will probably not be Mark.

    Sweet, excited to see a full game match to see what the game will actually play like. Normally I would be bugged by the bat knee, but i wouldn't be surprised if that is changed by the time of launch, and if not i can deal.

    Really glad to see grundy. One of the things I like about the mvc series is the use of a few more obscure characters, which satisfies those fans and introduces newcomers to them. Though not the most obscure character he is a sign they might head in that direction for some. Also grundy is awesome.

    I always felt the reason has kept air moves the way they were is because the sprites made the style necessary, and after a while they just became part of the series's style. So I hope without the obligation they diversify air moves a bit. I actually have no problem with the block button, I prefer back, but the items, arenas and possibility of things like mk style teleports etc. may make it necessary to have a designated button. Really depends on which works best with the game.

    Ineresting that the logo or name of dc does not appear in the title, would have thought that would have been in there. Also interesting to see how over the top supers will be)

    Characters I want:
    Lobo- mostly because I think he would really fit the visual style, and i would love a interactive motercycle
    Martian Manhunter- He deserves it, would be really fun, only problem is the extra work required for tranforming
    Aquaman- Because screw you Aquaman's awesome
    Nightwing-they may have 2 bat characters already, but he should have priority over everyone but batman
    Blue Beetle- Because Blue Beetle
    Green Lantern (any)
    Zatanna or Doctor Fate- I would love this.
    Animal Man

    And so many more that I'm missing and will hate myself for.

    Who gives a fuck if you want to argue comics or make a comics perfect game then it won't be a fighter.



    I'm interested in seeing how they incorporate the stages into the game. I think it's going to be the biggest new feature the haters are going to bitch about and that the rest of us are going to love. Ultra mega ridiculous combos define Marvel but really nothing exciting happens in the course of the game. As long as stage interaction isn't a shallow feature to get a little extra damage, then I think it could be a great game.

    My character wish is for Jim Lee's Zod.

    That's my opinion on it and I think it will definitely feel different. I think that instead of simply upping the ante on everyone like they did with Marvel, they can make the game play in a different style that feels like superheroes but doesn't feel completely off to MK players.

    Stage interaction can be hit or miss.

    If it's busting people through walls and floors like XMCOTA or MvC1 Bathhouse? Cool.

    If it's like you get different attacks when near a wall or low wall or something like that like VF throws? Cool.

    If it's shit falling on your head and getting in the way or random tigers attacking you out of nowhere? No thx.
